Gauging the temperature

Although sometimes it feels like we live back in pioneer days, we do have an outdoor thermometer. It's on the back porch and perfectly easy to check. However, it's much more fun to judge the temperature by the animals. 

How much frost is on the backs of cattle?

A lot of frost? It's cold. 

How many legs are the chickens standing on? 

Just one? It's pretty cold. 

Don't worry chickens, temperatures look like they are headed up for the next few days.

    These photos are beautiful. I'm standing on one leg this morning, it's 4 below.

  2. -4! Brrr....we haven't had temps even close to that low so far. Is it strange that I'm jealous of your cold temps?

  3. This is hysterical! Nanny used to say if the frost is on the inside of the window - time for more wood! Although, I have to admit - I've never been cold on the farm. The barns just hold in heat with the hay and the house with the woodstove. I LOVE your pictures and believe you are certainly living the pioneer life with a THANK THE GODS FOR BARISTAS! side note! love ya two!
